The first harvest: malaka

The new year has also brought the rain season which has been such a blessing to our crops. Currently we have planted sweet corn, tomatoes (pictured here), pumpkin, potatoes, and spinach which have yet to mature.

It soon will be season for planting the next crops of beans, corn, eggplant, kale and butternut. We have volunteers from the church willing to plant but we are still praying for the funds to buy additional seeds.

We harvested our first crop of malaka, a type of summer squash. This is a huge praise! It will be cooked each day to feed to the Mukisa Kindergarten students at the end of their school day. It is boiled and served with sugar and milk.
